As part of Interior Savings Unplug and Play Week, join us to hear Dr. Beverlie Dietze speak about sparking children’s curiosity in outdoor play.
Parents and caregivers play a key role in encouraging the investigation and exploration of their world outside. When children’s curiosity is sparked and nourished, their learning gets deeper, becomes more meaningful, and they become more motivated to be outside. Through this presentation, you will understand the curiosity cycle and explore ways to contribute to children embracing their sense of wonderment, intrigue, exploration, and discovery.
